Part of a global re-structuring effort that seeks to create cost savings of 500 million euros by the end of 2020, the redundancies are to be made primarily in Espoo.

Tommi Uitto, the director of mobile networks at Nokia, reminded that the company also has a number of vacant positions in its mobile network division and intends to fill some of the positions as soon as possible. He added that although the cost-saving programme has proceeded according to plan, the company will continue to take action to improve its operational capability and secure its competitiveness in the long term.
